Rumor on a Boston board would have Sullinger/Bass/Lee or Bradley/pick going to Sac for Cousins and it might be expanded to include Evans.

Cousins mentored under KG? Cousins might just become an MVP in a few years.

That is a very good spot for Cousins, won't be allowed to act like a fool. Sucks for us though.

That would actually work out because Cousins is an offensive beast, move him to PF.

It sounds like they want Bradley/Sullinger/Bass + Lee if Evans is involved.


Can you imagine:

Rondo
Evans
Pierce
KG
Cousins





The bench is weak sauce but maybe they get filler or keep Lee or Bradley? IMO Sacremento would be better if a deal like this were to go down. They instantly can defend, mind you offensively they're kinda shit though.

DeMarcus Cousins is not going to the Celtics. Teams continue to be told that he's not available. That is all.

It amazes me how much BOS values Bradley. Although hes a great defender with an improving offensive game, if you have to give him up for Cousins, you do it, no questions asked. Celtics fans were talking about Bradley being their savior when he came back. I dont think his impact is that big.

Cousins, with KGs help, can turn their season around and give them a very nice future with him and Rondo. Miami will have serious problems stopping Boston if they get Cousins, with him being such a great offensive rebounder, and also on the defensive end since BOS has been horrible on the glass the last few seasons.

I think SAC can do better though. They should be looking to dump him for 2-3 1st round picks at least, not a package of Bradley, a 1st, and another player.

You honestly think Sacramento would be better after giving away talents like Cousins and Evans for Bradley, Sullinger and role players? Cousins has superstar potential and Evans has all-star potential. Can't even come close to the players they're getting back in return. I'd even say Cousins swapped for those 4 players is barely worth it if at all.

Yeah, he's probably not officially on the market. I believe Sac is turning down all the offers until they see interest from a few particular teams that have attractive assets, and only then would Sac start talking. Boston is not one of those teams; the Celts just can't offer anything of fair value unless the package includes Rondo.

Out of curiousity, if Colangelo offered a package that included Lowry and Val, and the Kings bite, who would be cool with that?

that's tough. DMC is better than any player on this team though. We would be left without a pg though for next season.

We'd be left without the guarantee of a proven starter. In that hypothetical, we'd probably get back Brooks or Thomas as filler, and then there is always the possibility of re-signing Clapperon for a couple of years.

Just curious if people would do it.
